terribly illustrative. a lot ofen doing a studying of the united states economy going back to revolutionary times. there were a lot of periods where the economy was very volatile. you were so many booms and busts in the 19th century and so on. the last 25 years, from 1890 to from was very sehgal -- 1990 22 thousand seven, was very stable. 1990 to 2007 was very stable. if you never owned a house you might go from a time when you live alone in a single apartment to where you have to have a roommate back to where you can afford a single apartment and back and forth depending on what is.economy if people lose that resiliency they feel there is no opportunities to get ahead. that is basically what i want to say. journal.comnational -- but he railed along the way -- schedule got derailed on long the way. the senate would tackle a number of nominations. the employee nondiscrimination act and drug legislation -- one clarification, the houses back next week. they will return after the veterans day holiday. sandy is joining us from phoenix, arizona. you say this is not the land of opportunity. why is
our economy tilt towards a certain highly privileged class that gets everything while the broad middle class and lower middle class is further and further left behind. this is the first major reversal of that trend. it's not just about kids with pre-existing conditions, it's about reestablishing a different social contract with american families and workers across a broad spectrum that begins to connect different ends of american society. that's why it's so important defining legacy building step for the administration. too bad it's been such a horrible rollout. it really is not just about kids and the poor. it's about the american middle class that's going to continue to see their jobs under stress, continue to see the kinds of things shored up, quality of life they had come undone. i think it's very, very important to remember this isn't just about small segments of american society, even though that was a very passionate and compelling comment from the congressman. >> it's very important i think to lead with children. no, it has great political impact. steve is right. our country no
that, currently standing at $17.1 trillion which is over 100% of the size of our economy. during that same 2006 debt limit debate, then-senator biden said -- quote -- "my vote against the debt limit increase cannot change the fact that we have incurred this debt already and will no doubt incur more. it is a statement that i refuse to be associated with the policies that brought us to this point"-- unquote. that was then-senator biden. mr. president, things have certainly changed since 2006. now president obama and vice president joe biden preside over an administration that tells us that raising the debt limit is merely a matter of paying our bills and is a a reflection of decisions made in congress. yet while it is ostensibly true congress has the power to raise the debt limit, it is not true that congress makes spending decisions. unilaterally. with no role being played by the executive branch. no amount of spending can be enacted without the president signing it into law. in addition, the president submits a budget every year. the white house also issues policy statements and
government. budgets are moral documents that reflect our priorities as a nation. for the sake of our economy, this congress must turn back from the current brinksmanship and obstruction and return to the practice of negotiation and compromise. the proposed budget and across-the-board spending cuts to domestic programs are continuing to splam families, children, -- slam families, children, seniors and impact to texas that include $9 billion to cuts in snap benefits over 10 years. almost $32 billion in cuts for texas seniors and the loss of over 5,000 jobs for our texas educators. we should focus on improving our education, strengthening old infrastructure, investing in advanced domestic manufacturing and paving the way for the future. let's show the american people that compromise and negotiation are not a thing of the past and washington can work together on their behalf. as elected leaders, we owe it to the american people to do the jobs we were sent here to do. i yield back. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman's time has expired. for what purpose does the gentleman from indiana seek rec

the economy, to do so in a fiscally sound way. if you don't have revenue on the table, we've cut -- it's important to note that going into this debate they say there should be more cuts. there's been $2.4 trillion in deficit reduction. $600 billion of that has been from the expiration of the high-end bush tax cuts. $600 billion. $1.8 trillion have come from cuts. there's hardly any other place to go but nonetheless subject every federal dollar to scrutiny. cut where you can cut if it's d duplicative or whatever. do not say we're going to give tax breaks to the wealthy while it makes seniors may more for medicare as it voucherizes medicare. >> do you think in this process there'll be some flexibility on the sequester? i know there have been some who want to just do away with sequester. senator joe manchin and others are looking at can we have more flexibility. what's your position on that? >> if we have sequester we have to have the flexibility. and what senator manchin is putting forth is a reasonable proposal. but we would rather do away with sequestration. because it just cuts so muc
economy in the world and she's going to be the chief executive officer for that for heaven's sake. we must hold her accountable. >> yes, but if she were to be fired or step down, you'd have to have a replacement in place very quickly. and that replacement would have to go through hearings in the senate. and i mean, you republicans, you would make hay on that occasion, wouldn't you? that's why i say ms. sebelius is not going to resign and she's not going to be fired. >> first of all, stuart, how can we do any worse? secondly, if the president presented someone who was qualified, had credentials and perhaps came from the private sector, knew something about the marketplace, really understand about human behavior and why people buy insurance and why they don't. i think they would fly through the senate. stuart: that's a big "if" though, if the president nominated somebody who was market oriented. >> true. stuart: congressman, we appreciate you being with us. it's going to be a big week for you and i hope you tell us what happens when you question miss sebelius. always a pleasure. mcdonald's,

must control key aspects of american life. healthcare and the economy being the top two. thus, the end justifies the means in trying to do that. thus, mr. obama keeps saying you can keep your old insurance plan if you like it. even though you can't. ifyour plan doesn't include the federal mandates that are being imposed. now, talking points and many others have pointed that out again and again. we pointed out that obama care will cause many americans, perhaps most, major inconvenience and higher healthcare expense. rarely does the president mention higher deductibles and co-pays for his health program. even though mr. obama's propaganda has been exposed, he doesn't seem to care. instead of being chastened he is emboldened, why? because the president believes that his vision for america, including healthcare for all, is more noble than any truthful statement. and so he justifies his actions, even if deceit is involved. that was clear yesterday when the president said. this. toted the affordable care act requires insurance companies to abide by some the strongest consumer protections thi

think you'd agree. going back to your context question, there's a high tax economy in france. i mean, in fact, it was said perhaps you should not raise as many attaches as your doing, but he wants to get france out of its economic difficulties. he would rather do that by putting taxes on people who can afford it, big professional football clubs and players, rather than cutting services that will affect the less well off which of course is the route they've taken in the u.k., for instance. this is the way he's playing it here, but it's gotten him into trouble, of course. >> of course we should talk about his popularity ratings and it's sunk to an all time low. it's not just football players and millionaires affected. he has been trying to raise taxes across the board, but has had to reverse some of his decisions, hasn't he? >> well, he has. he's sort of struggling with this unpopularity and he's made compromises, just one this week on an eco tax he wanted to put on heavy goods vehicles. there were riots in britney in western france over the weekend. there's another big demo planned fo
cost curve and reducing the fraction of our national economy that goes for health care? >> well, i think that we have already had some success. i think the goal is to continue to achieve that, fully insured population arguably with preventative care, an opportunity to see a primary care doctor and not go through the emergency room will in and of itself reduce costs. having people identified earlier who may have serious problems and managing those problems will reduce health costs. i think the delivery system also needs some considerable help in paying for a number of procedures, number of tests, number of prescriptions but paying for health outcomes. >> thank you, mr. chairman. >> thank you very much, mr. chairman and madam secretary, thanks for being with us today. appreciate your testimony so far today. what i'd like to do is i'll get these two you. there are so many -- these are questions that we've received from our constituents back home specifically about what's going on with the website and for them. so what i'll do, i'd like to get those two you. but there is a lot of quest

, one in four of his citizens are on food stamps. this is an incredible impact on the economy. for every $5 spent on food stamps there's $9 in the economy. so this is a very important social safety net for working families, seniors, disabled and poor children. so that's what i think we ought to be mainly concerned about is this plan to cut $40 billion over the next ten years because then the problem becomes very, very structural and long term. >> sir, thanks for making time for me. i appreciate it. >>> joining me is former dnc chair howard dean. sir, it's good to have you with me now. you may have heard me talking with the congressman about the gop sabotage politico was talking about. that's hardly a secret. part of that campaign has been one of misinformation, being intellectually dishonest about how people are losing their insurance plans. we've got a couple of articles out today. the l.a. times says back in march they placed these plans in a category called junk health insurance. some plans may be worse than having none at all. so these points also make that the expecting insurance co

"we cannot leave this debt to our children and grandchildren." host: a question citing jobs as an issue. guest: jobs is always what everybody says they are doing. it is particularly amusing in the house. they say their number one issue is jobs. there are nicely designed pamphlets and flyers they hold up in press conferences. you could talk about the jobs created by this congress and it is not good. it is not their priority. there is a real disconnect. many polls show the americans want jobs. there has been so much fighting and so much ideological fighting over obamacare. we have had 42, 43 house votes now to repeal it, gut it, defund it. the process to create jobs has taken a side stage for now. host: the president has asked congress to pass the jobs bill several times. guest: a few weeks ago i was talking to senator lindsey graham, and he sort o

to our housing market and economy moving forward. in a letter to the senate this week, 54 community and advocacy organizations called for congressman watt's confirmation, saying -- let me quote -- "representative watt has the depth to grasp the problems that plague fannie mae and freddie mac and has the skills to work with everyone involved to get the housing market back on track." i agree. i was proud to join my north carolina colleague, senator richard burr, in introducing congressman watt at his confirmation hearing earlier this year and i'm pleased that the banking committee approved his nomination. the bipartisan support for congressman watt from our delegation in north carolina is representative of his longtime ability to work across the aisle. during his distinguished tenure in congress, congressman watt worked with republican judiciary committee chairman bob goodlatte and representative lamar smith to pass legislation that addressed patent and trademark office backlogs. and he worked with representative blame luptemeyer to get transparency for a.t.m. fees while eliminating e

, and frankly, what i think has to concern everybody, this economy is stalled and people don't know what the future is going to bring. and when people are uncertain about the future, they sit on their wallets, and that's why we're not seeing the kind of economic growth that we need to see that's so vital to create new jobs here in the state of ohio. >> that's the argument against obama care, but obama care is here. i'm asking specifically about the damage done by a troubled rollout that you're seeing in your state. >> well, that's got everybody just shaking their heads. and that's like three things. the government almost shut down. now they're tapping somebody's phone and now this thing. this is creating an issue of confidence in the minds of the american people and doubt with people around the world, which is really serious. now, here's what i think, david, at the end of the day. i think people need to sit down. the obama administration needs to open itself up and figure out how we can get some sort of bipartisan movement moving forward. we sit in a room, we figure out what's good, what
progressivism and a growing economy. >> isn't this why we're seeing such gridlock? because republicans feel their mission is to just block president obama? >> absolutely. and you've got to look back at the contrast. democrats were in the minority, they were the opposition party. what they did was they fought for what they believed in and worked with the republicans to get things done. this gang of republicans, once they got in the majority they say no, no, no. look, we are -- with president obama in the white house, they said our mission is not to work with him. from the beginning as cynthia pointed out, from the beginning they pointed out their mission is to oppose every single thing. i've got news for laura ingraham and the other guys, they're there to solve problems. they're there to fix things. they're not there to block things. that started with newt gingrich and the congress and has been wrong ever since. >> you know, cynthia, last week president obama renewed his push for immigration reform. listen to this. >> everybody knows that our current immigration system is broken. across the
